Series 4 - Episode 1



The superheroes are back, although devotees will miss Alisha and Simon who departed at the end of the last series. Newcomers are likely to be utterly befuddled — as are the new Misfits: doe-eyed, moody Jess and motor-mouthed Finn. They turn up for their first day of community service clad in the obligatory orange jumpsuits and in possession of the requisite superpowers. Posing as their probation officer, fellow young offender Rudy (the fabulously frenzied Joe Gilgun) soon drags them into the deep end. Prepare for power tools, mind-bending flashbacks and fruity language.


Return of the superhero comedy-drama. New gang members Finn and Jess begin community service and meet their probation worker, but things turn peculiar when a man stumbles into the centre with a briefcase and a power that infects them both. The truth unravels in a series of tense flashbacks and they realise there is a lot more to the job than scrubbing graffiti and picking up litter.
